"ethnographies" is an ongoing photography project which aims to create visual records of customs and folkloric manifestations around contemporary rural Romania, in the context of depopulation and increasing phenomenon of migration. The series focuses on practices which take place in various regions of the country (such as Maramures, Oltenia, Vrancea, Transylvania or villages located near Bucharest area), throughout the calendar year.

am a 26-year-old visual artist and freelance photographer interested in Visual Anthropology and Storytelling, constantly looking for new ways to nurture self-expression. In 2016 I graduated from the Bucharest National University of Arts, Photography and Video department, and in 2018 I successfully completed an MA degree in Ethnology, Cultural Anthropology and Folklore at the University of Bucharest.
